AROS for AmigaOS: AfA 4.00 Final Beta1
Bernd Rösch is making available a final beta version of AROS for AmigaOS (AfA), a port of individual AROS components to AmigaOS 3.9. The author asks for feedback in case certain applications do not get along with the thicker window borders, then, in the final version, these programs will already be entered in a blacklist and will therefore continue to be provided with the old, thinner window borders.

Features of AfA 4.00 Final beta 1:
  • Visualprefs and Birdie or AFA-skin can be selected via AFA_Prefs and adapted Startup-Sequence. For this, refer to the Readme at all costs for how you must change the startup-sequence (In Amikit 1.4, this is already done)
  • OS4/PNG icons can be scaled in real time, thanks to high-grade scale code by Thilo Köhler. On a classic (060), OS4 Mason icons with a size of 30 pixels can be displayed faster than in original size.
  • In getdiskobject and dupdiskopbject, added tags IA_Width, IA_Height for scaling
  • Realtime skin system, which can switch skins without closing and opening screen, arbitrary border sizes also possible at the same time (screenshot)
  • A blacklist in which you can enter names of programs which do not get along with larger window borders, then, the standard border size of AmigaOS is assigned to these
  • Many configurable realtime parameters, like 3 different window border lines, window title size, size gadget size
  • The user can change the settings preset by the skin designer via GUI
  • Window title font selectable independent of the window font configured in AmigaOS
  • Position of the text in the window title and shadows with configurable depth selectable
  • The skins consist of multiple pictures for the screen title and all parts of the window title like top, left, bottom and right border and for the foreground and background for the vertical and horizontal scroll bar
  • 7 skins by Ken Lester now usable (screenshot)
